Winner: Small retail interior of the year 2021 Yatofu Creatives has designed a post office in Ningbo's Bund, Waitan. The project is the first of its kind in the province.
In establishing a new location on the banks of the Yongjiang River, the Bund Post Office sought to revive the establishment's former significance and re-establish its role as the centre of the community.
The new premise needed to evoke a sense of nostalgia and at the same time provoke the boundaries of what is traditionally associated with the concept of the post office.
Judges' comments: "The design has so many different shapes and patterns but is impressively put together. The space is playful, engaging and beautifully done. There is incredible attention to detail and the overall effect is quite sweet."
